Bottle. Pours darkish orange red with good beige head. The aroma is malty with toffee and dark fruit and hints of pepper and alcohol. The flavor is toffee, some tannic woody notes. The finish has caramel and pepper. As it gets to room temperature, it gets a bit alcoholy.

Suttree (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Clear, coppery brown, nice foamy head. Clean, bready toasty aroma, maybe a hint of burnt toast, as well. Similiar foacvor, maybe a touch watery. Notes of coffee, black tea, maybe some winey notes, too. Union Jacks, Knoxville, bottle.

I seem to have liked this beer more than others. The beer had a unique tingle when it hit the tongue. It had that sweet and thick flavor without being viscous. Great jog of having flavor without filling up my stomach.

Tmoney99 (10585) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear brown with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet hoppy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet malty flavor with a medium smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met for 1900.

Wrongly guessed that this would be a belgian triple when I ordered it by name only. I was surprised but not unhappy with the beer. It is not really strong or "powerful". It is an easy drinking beer that doesnít offend, smoothly delivering a decent, maybe overly sweet, malt character balanced reasonably by hop bitterness.

Bottle, nice dark beer, you can definetly smell the fruit and sweetness of this beer. it is a little bit bitter for me, not like hop bitter but something else, not quit sure. Overall pretty good, but it is not as smooth as i would like.

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle...pours a dark amber color...minimal tannish head. Fruity malt nose...sweet, wow basically overly sweet malt flavor, maybe some caramelish toffee notes in there. Nahh, this ainít getting it done. It says "A powerful smooth strong ale...". Donít believe it for a second. Iíd believe a powerfully fruity sloppy mess, but thatís about it. Thin and crappy. Donít waste your time on this.

Bottle, 5.3%. Slightly spicy aroma, some sewer. Clear dark chestnut colour. Acidic flavour, but nicely malty. Roasted aftertaste.
